Some ML disable such evil ways of redirection. ;)
Anyway, keep it public until being told it's not of interest,
chances are good that others have similar interests and like to
hear the answers.

See the above mentioned FAQ, here is my mailcap line:

text/html;lynx -stdin -force_html -dump; copiousoutput

> '-'

If it is _ONLY_ argument!
_THEN_ it takes _CMD-LINE_ args from stdin, not content to be
interpreted as HTML!
Please reread carefully that paragraph. :)
Also, have a look at full list of cmd-line options.
